something better please come out in 5 days!
Ya, my stepup expires on the 15th. Thanks nvidia for screwing me over by 3 days. Although if the price ends up 599 for the gx2 like i'm hearing, that probably would have killed the stepup anyway.

Hard time?

Did it work without problems or not?

my computer started randomly restarting once i shoved in my 2nd gtx.... i ended up taking my audigy out and it was running just fine after that.. so i barely had enough juice to run it all.. if my compy wasnt oc'd it ran just fine as well

but a 2.4ghz quad definitely is a bottleneck to 2 8800gtx's...

i dunno about that one... i'm pretty sure these consume more power than a single 8800gtx.. and after what i jsut said... ain't gonna happen.. unless ur running 1 hard drive and not overclocking w/ no soundcard... i've got 650 watts, 80 % efficiency, and 57amps... and i couldnt run dual gtx unless i was bone stock on everything

i dunno.. w/ the 9600gt doing great w/ 64sp.. and this w/ 128.. and possibly using the same technologies.... and whats the purpose of this being longer than the current 8800gtx?! and having 2 6-pin connectors... now i'm not getting my hopes up... but i pray for nvidia that this is not just a 8800gts
